Your interpretation of what Bruce said makes sense. But it is not
how I parsed, "BelongToFamily xyz" in his message. I read it the same
way it seems that Roger did, as giving a list: node x, node y, and
node z.  And then we're off and running. I think what Bruce/you
suggest is better than what I proposed to avoid the problems Roger and
Andrew noted. As I said before, it's not how MyFamily now works. And I
believe Andrew/Roger/me/others were addressing trying to use the
existing functionality in a different way, which was another
disconnect. Anyway, this is certainly an idea worth considering.

Now, should you ever say you are in multiple families at once?
And should there be a lattice structure for families, hmmm? ;>)
